Deep night blue summer dress with small golden square pattern

 

This beautiful deep blue summer dress is so comfortable one feels like wearing it every day! It came without a belt so I added one just to see the result, and I think it does the trick! The fabric is a very lightweight viscose/polyester with a subtle shimmer. It is unlined and slightly sheer when seen against the sun. Buttoned half way down the front of the dress. Length is below knee.

Petroleum blue cache-coeur dress

Petroleum blue cache-coeur dress 1

I received this dress from my friend Tonia in Basel. It is not Japanese vintage but I like it very much and I think it deserves a feature on this blog. The dress is in clear 1930’s style so I am tagging it with 30’s even if it is probably not as old as that. I love the bias cut of the skirt with its uneven hemline (slightly longer on the sides and shorter in the middle). I also like the stylish sleeve placket, uncharacteristically placed at the back of the arm. A beauty!

Very light very mini sleeveless dress with pink novelty print

This very sexy mini summer dress must have been the star of the Japanese 70’s. It is made of an extremely light viscose crepe fabric with a fragile silky feel, delicate and easy to wrinkle, sheer when seen a against the light. It was tailor made and hand sewn, with the fabric manufacturer’s label (Reimon d’or Original Print) running along all the back of the dress on the inside. The clumsy looking seamwork on the inside of the dress makes it a true collectable!
